New! CVE Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for CVEs has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. CVEs that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Description

socketfilterfw in Application Firewall in Apple Mac OS X before 10.9 does not properly implement the --blockApp option, which allows remote attackers to bypass intended access restrictions via a network connection to an application for which blocking was configured.
